Late Spring at Snowbird

When Deer Valley closed, I had skied 126 days out of the 128 the resort was open (I had to sit out two days because of an injury).  Most people had already written off skiing for the year, saying they were "over it."  I was not.   In fact, I got a spring pass at Snowbird and kept after it.

Looking down Little Cottonwood Canyon toward the southern end of the Salt Lake City metro area on my first day at Snowbird--a powder day!

After enjoying a little powder in Mineral Basin, I got lucky and followed ski patrol through a gate right after they opened up this area.  Those are my tracks still by themselves  on the far right.

Not a bad backdrop for enjoying some beverages

Not really visible here, but ski patrol was blasting on top of that mountain
